Pittsburgh, PA - The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation and EMBRACE Pittsburgh will co-host the first-ever "Break the Ice Night" when the Penguins face the Florida Panthers on Sunday, January 5 at PPG Paints Arena (5:00PM ET). The event is part of the NHL's "Hockey Talks" initiative.

"Break the Ice Night" will highlight the efforts of EMBRACE Pittsburgh, a city-wide movement focused on championing mental strength throughout the region.  

All fans attending the game will receive a bracelet set known as "EMBRACE-lets," which encourage fans to start the conversation about mental wellness using #BreakTheIce. The EMBRACE-let Sets also share information about Hockey Talks, a mental health awareness campaign adopted by 15 NHL teams.

Penguins players will wear Hockey Talks decals on their helmets at the January 5 game in support of Break the Ice. The Penguins will also autograph specialty locker room nameplates, which will be included in the Penguins Foundation's gameday auction at
